Muslim man let his own daughter drown – for the sake of honor, forbidding lifeguard to rescue her
When a 20 year old woman was about to drown at a beach in Dubai, the rescue was canceled by her father, who instead chose to let her drown. The man explained that his honor would be violated if any of the male lifeguards touched his daughter.
The policeman Ahmed Burqibah tells Emirates 24|7 that the man had brought his wife and children to a picnic at the beach.
Suddenly the 20-year-old daughter began to call for help. Two male lifeguard rushed to help her out of the water – but was stopped by force by the woman’s father.
– Her father was a tall and strong man. He became violent and tried to pull away and stop the lifeguards. He explained to them that he preferred that his daughter died rather than being touched by male strangers, says Ahmed Burqibah to the newspaper.
